Description

Thorn & Feather is located near the hamlet of Vermaaklikheid, 35 km from Riversdale and 40 km from Stilbaai and offers accommodation for up to 6 adults and 3 children. The property is set on a ridge of the Afromontane forest overlooking the Duiwenhoks River, with private access to the river.

This exclusive establishment offers private accommodation in the form of three separate stone cottages that are interlinked by well-maintained walkways hemmed in by low stone walls. Cottage Annabelle has a queen-size bed and a single bed that is suitable for a child. Astrid cottage has a queen-size bed and 2 single beds for 2 children, and it features a toilet and outside shower. Sam cottage is fitted with a queen-size bed. Guests have access to a separate toilet, an outside shower, a bathhouse fitted with a stone bath and shower, as well as exceptional views. Piping hot water is supplied by a large boiler that is prepared daily by a member of staff.

The main building boasts a fully equipped, self-catering kitchen and dining area with large folding doors that open onto a porch. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge-freezer, second freezer, gas oven, gas stove, bar fridge, traditional cooking hearth and cooking utensils. Wi-Fi access is available.

The porch contains an inside braai, a living area and a large comfortable daybed. The open deck is equipped with a round fire pit, more braai facilities, and a plunge pool. The deck continues into a walkway which leads to a lower deck that is situated under trees, also with views of the river. There is a larger pool and deck chairs for relaxing and swimming in freshwater supplied by a nearby spring.

After the two decks guests travel a short distance under a dense canopy of milkwood trees to the river bank. For an additional fee, guests may rent watersports equipment: triple, double and single canoes, double kayaks, paddleboards, paddles and children's life jackets. The property has private access to the river's edge with a jetty. Guests wishing to launch boats are required to make use of one of two public slipways in the area.

Activities in the area include angling, bird watching, boating, canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, and mountain biking. A beautiful, uncrowded beach can be reached by kayak or boat at the river mouth.
